What is the Fire Rating on Your Safe?

This article morphed into a “how and why” of all things Steelhead Safe Design Since a modular safe is such a unique answer to the question “Which Safe is Right for me?”, we had a hard time writing this article without taking a pretty in-depth dive into our design rationale behind most of the key features of our safes.

There is only one universally recognized fire testing procedure for safes, UL 72. There are many UL 72 Continue Reading >>

Does Your State Have a Gun Safe Requirement Law?

As a responsible gun owner, you want to ensure you are following the local, state and federal regulations for possessing, and storing firearms.

What About Those External Gun Safe Hinges?

Often times people ask us “What about those external hinges, aren’t they less secure? Actually, yours bolt on, couldn’t someone simply unbolt the hinges and take the door off?

How to Configure Your Perfect Gun Safe?

Our safes, along with most other safes, are available in several different configurations. The ideal configuration is determined by what you would like to put inside your safe. Most gun safes are stated for a “gun capacity”. These are sometimes overly optimistic, and even include statements that say some guns must be upside down to fit the stated number of guns in the safe. We don’t push any misleading gun capacity recommendations so we only offer our interior configurations in a stated gun capacity that we have tried out and photographed for proof. For example, our Nomad 26 is Continue Reading >>
